Reports have claimed United representatives, including one of the Glazer family who own the club, have met with the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach.

It is understood United are surprised by the reports and are insisting no such meeting took place.

It was suggested Van Gaal could take over from David Moyes, who has endured a difficult first season at Old Trafford, in the summer.

Van Gaal, 62, will become a free agent after Holland's World Cup campaign ends and he has already been heavily linked with Tim Sherwood's job at Tottenham.

Moyes was given a six-year contract when he took over from Sir Alex Ferguson last year but has faced criticism over the team's disappointing results.

Last season's champions have long been out of contention for the Barclays Premier League title and are currently seventh in the table.

Their prospects of qualifying for the Champions League next season are slim and the Van Gaal speculation comes just days after they were knocked out of this season's competition by Bayern.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
